From Prehistory to Present Day

  1. Beachy Head Story
    The Beachy Head Story is a brand new exhibition that will allow you to discover the beautiful landscape of Beachy Head and the South Downs. Start at the formation of the Downs and continue through time, discovering the stories of people who have shaped this landscape. Find out why Beachy Head has been so important to people for thousands of years, and why it is still a must-see tourist destination on the South Coast.
  2. Free Exhibition and Gift Shop Open Daily!

  3. Excavations
    Learn new skills and find amazing discoveries.
  4. Gift shop
    Our gift shop stocks a variety of locally inspired and environmentally conscious products. From candles to artwork, with books, toys, fossils and soaps in between, there is something here for everyone. If that doesn’t tempt you, perhaps two blends of tea made especially for us by well-known local brand Bird and Blend will. Plus check back soon for our new online shop, which will open in the coming weeks....
